I have a brought a small aloe vera plant. I keep it in my balcony. Does any one knows about nurturing the aloe vera plant. It could if great help. It's matter of life or death( for plants).

@toniganzon gave you the right suggestion. Aloe vera is a succulent, it needs sun, warm temperature and very little water.

Put them out in the sun and don't water them. It's a plant and forget plant. You don't need to give them much attention. It's a succulent so just make sure you don't water them too much.

We also have aloe vera on the balcony. I think you have to water them every day and expose it to the sun to make it grow quickly.

Never ever water a succulent plant on a daily basis. YOu'd kill it.

@rheicel don't tell me you water them everyday. Read about succulents and you would know that you don't have to water them everyday. IN your comment you said "I think..." which means you are not sure.

@toniganzon My father water them every day I always see him watering the aloe vera and other plants. Do you have aloe vera in your house? I could send a picture if you don't want to believe me. That's how he takes care of our plants he waters them every day. I don't know how he does it but it's still alive. Maybe it depends on how you will take care of aloe vera.

Didn't think of much. I just brought it because I read somewhere that it acts like a air purifier. And the aloe vera itself is very useful.??

I don't think aloe vera plant needed much care. We have aloe vera plant planted on a pot at our backyard. My mom doesn't even water it daily most especially in the morning but it is still there growing.

Wrong! You don't water a succulent plant like an aloe vera everyday. It's a plant and forget plant. What it needs is a lot of sunshine and less water.

@toniganzon just out of curiosity is their any plant which need less sunlight. My other balcony doesn't receive much of sunlight. Can I grow any plant in that condition?

@batwings Snake plants are indoor plants which don't need much sunlight to thrive on.
